Importing Connection Settings

In this article

    To use Veeam Agent for Mac together with Veeam Backup & Replication, you must connect your Mac computer to the Veeam backup server. To do this, you must import the configuration file. The configuration file is one of the Veeam Agent for Mac setup files that you must obtain from your System Administrator. To learn more, see the Deploying Veeam Agents Using Generated Setup Files section in the Veeam Agent Management Guide.

    To import the Veeam Agent for Mac configuration file:

    1. Get the configuration file from your System Administrator and upload this file on the Veeam Agent computer.
    2. Navigate to the directory where you have saved the configuration file and run the following command:

    veeamconfig mode setVBRsettings --cfg <file_name>.xml

    where <file_name> is a configuration file name.

    Alternatively, you can specify the full path to the configuration file with the --cfg option.

    For example:

    user@wrk001:~% veeamconfig mode setVBRsettings --cfg /Users/user/Mac\ Workstations\ Distribs/Mac/Mac\ Workstations.xml

    Mind that the connection between Veeam backup server and Veeam Agent computer is not persistent. Veeam Agent synchronizes with Veeam Backup & Replication every 6 hours. To synchronize Veeam Agent immediately, run the following command from the Veeam Agent computer:

    veeamconfig mode syncnow
